Liverpool Fans Bewildered As Nathaniel Clyne Left Out of Champions League Squad

Liverpool fans have been left bewildered this afternoon after the club’s supposed first-choice right-back Nathaniel Clyne was left out of the club’s squad for the Champions League group stages.

Clyne is yet to play for the Reds competitively this season after struggling with back and hamstring injuries, and managed just one pre-season friendly during the summer.

But there has been no indication that Clyne would be out for the long-term until now, with Jurgen Klopp saying a few weeks ago that he’d expect Clyne to be fit for the start of September.

In Clyne’s absence, Trent Alexander-Arnold has excelled as Liverpool’s new stand-in right-back, and he looks like he could easily hold down the position for the long-term – so have we seen the last of Clyne in a red shirt?

It does seem slightly odd to us for Liverpool to leave him out of the European squad without so much as a hint that his injury was serious.

What do you think of the situation?
